number 10 is a resolution authorizing the tax collector attorney to file suit against responsible relatives to recover value of services rendered at hospital facilities operated by the department of public health. >> john gibner, deputy city attorney, sorry to interrupt the calling of the items. item 10 is an item that was sponsored by the tax collector. it's a resolution that requires board approval to allow the tax collector to pursue a certain claim for a recovery of funds. the item probably should -- will be considered in closed session by this committee at a future date, but today it was scheduled on the agenda under the settlement portion of the agenda and because this item isn't a settlement, we'd recommend that the committee continue this item to the next rules committee meeting when you can consider it in a separately agendized closed session. >> okay, any questions about that, colleagues? >> no. >> seeing none, can somebody make a motion to continue. is there any public comment on this -- which item, all of them? just 10, right? >> 10. >> any public comment on item numbe
, we talk a lot about low taxes, right? that's one issue that republicans are very much on the forefront of. that argument worked in the '80s because in the 50s, 60s and 70s, we had a high-tax structure. but that's not the case so much anymore. that argument doesn't resinate with a lot of americans. >> what state do you live in? >> oklahoma. >> i live in new york. over 60 cents of every dollar i make goes to state, local, federal government, sales tax, property tax. 60 cents of it. wait, you said that's a low rate. >> no, no, no -- what i'm saying. >> you think 60 cents out of every dollar of the government's low? >> no, what i'm saying is that argument doesn't resinate powerfully enough. what we need to do is transition to a new tax argument such as realizing the real job creators in this country are low to middle class income americans who actually buy products and services. >> look at people like rand paul who are able to energize conservatives, young people. and it's because he sticks to his values. nothing to do about don't make a tax argument. it means getting real

and the bonds will cause that rate to increase by 0.1 2% to 1.2 two and the other constraint is the property tax rate for the capital planning committee -- if approved that rate will remain within the constraint of the 2006 property tax levels, and is included in the fiscal year 14 tax rate for geo bonds and finally the resolution approved finance documents willing the official notice of sale and notice of intention to sale that announces -- provides legal notice of time and date of the sale and the issue nsance and approves the statement that provides investors with information concerning the bonds themselves and risks and securities and financials for the city and we intend to include the audit when it's available for investors [inaudible] that provides that notice to the investors as it occurs. i am happy to answer questions and we have other representatives here also. >> thank you. dpw do you have anything to present on this item or anything to add? if you don't that's okay too. we don't have questions at this point. mr. rose, can we go to the budget analyst report please. >> yes mr. cha
hope so as well. thank you. >>> u.s. businesses criticizing a plan to simplify the tax code now being proposed by the senate's chief staff writer, tax writer. the plan would stop companies from deferring u.s. taxes on foreign earnings and also impose an immediate 20% tax on roughly $2 trillion in profits u.s. businesses gained overseas, as well as curtail businesses being able to quickly deduct certain expenses like advertising, bringing in kyle harrington, founder and managing partner of harrington capital management. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> so those businesses that are crying foul, explain to what it is they have to lose and also how would an crews the board, 35% tax on corporate profits hurt them? meanwhile, those in favor, how would they benefit? >> here is the thing, let's just start with this, the public needs to know, and i think they do, that the u.s. tax code is messy. it's complicated. the discourse and discussion that they're having now about how to work within the tax code and maybe alter the tax code is a great narrative to have. now, the businesses that c
the additional head room in that tax increment for this tax purpose so we've built approximately close to 1,000 today, but about 6,000 still exist, so it's the obligation and funding stream. if the city were to accept the obligation, it would have to identify a funding stream so it would be unwise for the city to accept the obligation without a source of funds to do it. >> okay. i think i have some more thoughts on that, but that's not part of this resolution so we'll move on to other questions. can you just also explain again sort of the separation of the income stream from mixed use property that is are being transferred? what does that mean? >> so disillusion laws provides for an ability for the oversight board to make a determination that if you had a mixed use as sets bra oversight board believed it was not a benefit to the community and it was a benefit to the taxing entities to separate that out in order to keep the revenue from the non housing youth, it could take those actions. in our particular case, the as setses that are mixed use, we believe there is a benefit to the community,
board shall consider whether there is a benefit to the community and to the taxing entities for keeping those developments intact as they are or if there should be a revenue sharing great many such as the non housing uses were separated out. we're compiling a list of those assets. you can see them on the list you have. anything that says affordable low and income /photd rate housing commercial space. those are what we're talking about. most cases it's ground /tphror retail spaces or some cases they're non profit on the ground floor. any cases is offset expenses, they're integrated into the whole development. our staff recommendation is to find a finding that is to the benefit of the community and the taxing entities to keep these /tkefplts intact as they were developed. that condition /khraoudz my concludes my presentation and i'm available for any questions. >> thank you very much. i have one speaker card, charlie walker. >> he's gone. >> any other speakers? okay. thank you very much. i'll start off with a quick question. excuse me, i have no voice today. the replacement housing oblig
. efforts toclear that use regulatory power or taxes to change the price of various types of energy and i'm sure there's not a popular idea in oklahoma. proposals to do that are dead in the water right now. they probably cannot get the majority of votes from the democrats in the senate and they certainly will go nowhere in the house of representatives under republican leadership. things could change in a few years. our congress might pass the end of democratic control and that would be the prerequisite for anything coming up for debate in the congress. president barack obama has made it clear at this juncture that he plans to use executive authority and act through the epa for the remainder of his presidency. uncommitted on the part -- a commitment on the part of the u.s. to change would require congressional action for some kind of legislation. ben epa regulation can undermined if congress is determined to do that. my final question that i asked in the research exercise is, what can you imagine for another opening for action and what should happen if you happen to be someone who supports
members. she remained very hard on two issues. she doesn't want new taxes, and she doesn't want new borrowing. i understand that means she wants to keep fiscal policy very much in her own hands and will probably want to have a finance minister from her own party. >> we will be getting back to you in just a minute. >> central to this agreement is its focus on no new debt and no increase in the tax burden. >> germany has been watching very closely other euro zone nations suffer from deep austerity measures and would rather rein in expectations. >> take a closer look now at some of the key issues that have been agreed on. >> money has been central to the talks, and the two parties agreed on two key issues. they will be no tax increases to fund campaign promises, and the goal is for germany not to rack up any new debt from 2015 onwards. the key aim is a stable budget. some of the main points are retirement. the two sides agreed on a minimum pension for people with low incomes that have paid pension contributions for decades. mothers who had children before 1992 will also receive higher
about his tax cut policy, which is what i think what you really want to talk about re is jfk who started out fairly conservative on tax cuts and he was not a onservative when it cae to government policy. so it is a mixed bag. >> he did go after this industry and the irony, i will get into this with my day in san fran david asman, the message that he was trying to convey. it was always about getting this united states off the map that the russians were beating us in space, we had kind of lost our prestige he was concerned about that and it was a slowdown that he wanted to bring us out of that but ironically with tax cuts and things that would be friendly to businesses, incling cuts in investment. so had he lived, do you think ultimately -- but those tax cuts did go into effect i did have thdesired effect but they said that they would? would be a success more than lyndon johnson ultimately would? >> let talk about this. because one of the things that's important to understand is when he first comes into office, he is concerned about deficits as are most americans and he was actually oppose

've learned is that it is a tax. i mean, i wish they would have just -- john roberts said it's a tax and it's a tax, because there's no other way to look at it. so we're being asked to pay a $6,000 tax at the end of the year. and we haven't purchased it year. >> you're faced with this massive increase in cost, you've got to pay out this money, you've got no choice. are you going to cut back on something else, are you going to retrench in some way? war you going to do? >> well, of course we'll cut back. at 59 years old, the $6,000, we have a lot of uses for it. we've got a young son who's starting -- you know, he just got out of college, he's starting a career path, none of the kids are making much money. there are a lot of things we'll cut back on. but i think -- i think we'll think a little bit more about -- i don't use the doctor terribly much, but it does make one think a lot more about trotting off of doctor. >> i'll bet it does. >> linda, thank you very much indeed for joining us at a very difficult time. thanks for letting your anger out. we want to let people know how you feel. you d
a business plan. then we look at the three-year tax return and that statement. we do a lot of home care and mom-and-pop shops. we also do start ups. we asked for approval through documents. we work a lot with people who do not know how to file taxes properly. we are mainly focused in san francisco. we are small. we focus mainly on the tenderloin, chinatown, bayview, visitation. we do a lot of expansion. people start small through the credit union and then want to go to the bank. we know we are limited. we cannot afford to give out a big loan. starting from the credit union, we educate them about filing taxes properly and then moving on to the bank, a small one, expansion, and we work with the bank. the bank and credit union are similar. we do allow tax returns, projections. credit unions do not charge an additional loan or processing fee. processing time, on a small loan, -- consumer loans probably a few days. because we require a business plan, sometimes it takes longer. business plans take a while. especially bank statements. we need to see consistent income coming in. so far, a credi

. tax hikes have raised the hackles of his former supporters . click the pile of ash is already a meter high. for workers from this britney fish factory have been protesting its planned closure. they suddenly faced the bleak prospect of redundancy. >> it's a disaster for this region in the center of britney -- brittany. we've already lost food factories, and if they close this 1, 2, the whole area will collapse. >> denise is one of at least 200 workers. although it is an important regional employer, the promise of cheaper labor costs is enough to lower operations eastward to poland. t-shirts read, "we are angry." given that the company has just paid shareholders dividends, the anger is justified. they are fighting for fair compensation. >> in france, there are those at the top and those on the bottom. those at the top just ignore us, so we are protesting, especially in brittany, because people here are very attached to their region. >> the protests have spread far beyond the factory walls. a nearby town is awash with protesters in solidarity with their cause. they often depict red caps,
-- things that are assessable and that are not asssessable. there will be addressed for tax purposes. for every edition or every major permit, most permits we send to the assessor reporter's office. they have a staff who looks at building permits. they do not use the value that is on the building permit. that is our the dow elation purposes for charging fees. they have a whole mechanism for praising and assessing valuation. a horizontal addition and a vertical addition certainly will result in additional assessment. by the way,? are interesting because the rules change. if you are on the ground and it is a patio, it has different rules. if you lay a flagstone patio, you're not getting a permit for a deck. but if you build -- let us say you build a deck that is less than 30 inches off the ground. no permit is required. it does not go to the assessor reporter's office. between 30 and 36 inches off the ground, you need a permit. you can expand the entire size of your rear yard. if you are more than 36 inches off the ground, you have to meet the planning department open space requirement
as what the most likely outcome is. i think the president's budget lays out a clear path with both tax reform and entitlement reform and replacing the sequester and i actually think the president's budget is a blueprint that were we to follow it would give the economy the kind of certainty and tail wind it needs to grow. you know, i don't want to get aed of the budget conferees, since the resolution of the debt limit in october, they've been meeting, senator murray and congressman ryan have been meeting. there is any number of possibilities that they could come out with, any number of sizes. it could be small, medium or large. i think that anything they do that shows that they can kind of work together to kind of chip away would be a kind of -- instill some confidence both in the process and in the substance. i don't want to jump ahead of where they are. the challenge on doing something really big is that both sides have to do something really hard. we've made clear that in order to do the kinds of entitlement reforms that are in the president's budget, it would require moving on tax r
and potential big tax breaks for unions and a possible bailout for insurers, we're finding this out. a department of jtice brief showing the administration knew in 2010 that a huge percentage of employee-provided health plans would be canceled once the employer mandate kicks in. if you do the math, that adds up to about 80 million americans who could lose their policies once the employer mandate kicks in. so while the insiders g the breaks, do the rest of us just get broken? welcome to "forbes on fox." i'm david asman. sabrina schifer, elizabeth mcdonald, rick hunger and john canny. more special favors for friends, but are the rest of us getting shafted? >> yeah, you know, and we should have seen this coming. i mean, in the same 2010, president obama said in the run-up to congressional elections that electns are about rewarding your friends and punishing your enemies. so obama's friends get ese breaks. now here's the dilemma they are in. young people overwhelmingly supported president obama, and young ople, even young liberals, are very intolerant of two things. number one is techno
to avoid the excise tax imposed by the new health care law. it's known as the cadillac tax and hits the most generous health plans beginning in 2018. >> saying your insurance is too good, so we're going to give you a penalty is kind of outrageous to me. >> reporter: one survey of 1,000 businesses which employ more than 20 million americans found 60% said this looming tax is having a moderate or significant influence on benefits. the cadillac tax is designed to make companies and workers more cost conscious. the thinking is that if workers have to pay more expenses themselves, they will avoid unnecessary procedures. and that will bring down overall health costs. the president's top economic adviser insists the tax ultimately will hit only a small percentage of plans and four years from now. when employers notify workers they're saying one of the reasons for greater out of pocket costs is the new health care law. >> i don't see that at all. nothing in the law tells you that you need to raise copayments or deductibles. in fact, the law limits your ability to shift costs to your worker.
your business, with tax -- green your business, tax credits available with that. for non-profit, charitable organizations, we have a workshop coming up. that is helpful for those of you who are looking to access the committee on a durable basis. >> also, on behalf of leader pelosi, i want to thank our panel and her staff. we are tenants in this building. i apologize for the security situation that happened upstairs. if you have concerns about it, please come and see me. i would like to convey those to the landlord here so that it does not happen again. thank you. >> hi, everybody. my name is carmen chu. why don't we get started. with a marking up with the department of small business -- we have been working with the department of small business. this project started when we heard from neighborhood merchants. unfortunately, they had access issues, visibility access issues. we have been working closely with many of our partners year today to educate about these -- many of our partners year today to educate about these issues. also in terms of board guidance. i want to thank
not necessarily in support of doing away with our payroll tax to attract businesses -- to give a payroll tax exemption for new hires is not a good policy. changing from a payroll tax to a gross receipts tax, where it is not based on the number of employees you have and how much they are paid, but how much business you have, your business, is a better tax structure that does not harm businesses to hire more people. harman is a strong word, but does not attach the tax to your number of employees. it is a better structure, i believe. we do a lot of things to support businesses. muni improvements happening downtown, in the more distant parts of the city. supporting businesses. infrastructure we are putting in, sidewalks, lighting. all of this is important to businesses. lots of concentration on that in the downtown area. i see it as one of the big thing that we offer. we also have a pretty city. that attracts a lot of businesses. we have certain parts of the city that have really great thinking going on. you see california, as of state. our hospitals attract a lot of minds and attention. -- uc c
and the tax increment is fully pledged for this purpose of infrastructure and issue bonds when it's available. so, in order to check in with department of finance, we did have a meeting a few weeks ago to make sure that they felt comfortable with the process we are going through. we knew they wouldn't prove it on the spot. they did agree that this process was appropriate and these kinds of documents putting forward through you and the oversight board and there was every indication that they would look positively at this request going through to them. so, i will introduce the team members that we have present in a moment. but with the assistance of our financial advisor, we conducted an rfp for underwriteers, the management dell arose an and company and at the recommended writers for this deal. they were on this pool already and authorized pool for these types of activities. the attached resolution would confirm that recommendation. we also under the executive directors authority we did an rrp. you approved initially the bond council with steve mall with his firm. at that point we also selecte
earn -- who have a good job and earn a living don't want to pay taxes. you want to pay taxes for systems that work. when you talk about reform, it's actually to make things better to see if you can reduce costs. we knew -- we were called all sorts of names for saying this experiment was not going to work. now that it's not working, not only were you -- right to where you were before, now you're also accused of being selfish because you don't want to pay into a system that's not working. they're masters at pitting americans against each other. very unfortunate ball iternrtun not going to solve a single problem. >> i think it's time to stop talking. it's my piece of advice. try to come out every day and -- then something else goes wrong. the progressive tax system is redistribution. >> absolutely. >> you live under a progressive tax system, what -- and you accept it, i mean, i happen to be for a flat tax. if you believe in a progressive tax system, then you believe in redistribution. >> or you accept it and you don't necessarily -- >> well, it needs to go -- the further -- >> y
, they all came with major tax cuts and pro-growth policies, and this administration just does not do that. ashley: interesting, as a judge? i guess you mentioned taxes. we will talk about tax reform until we're blue in the face and now for a long time. are we ever going to get any meaningful tax reform to back. >> sure. we will give major tax reform, but you will have to wait until the political structure clears up. you have the elections in 2014 or i think they're republicans will pick up a number of seats in the house. then yap 2016 were i think he will get a major change. just so you know, aid is not a republican, democrat, conservative but just plain common sense economics. bill clinton did it right. ronald reagan did it. we just have to wait until 2017 to really get bipartisan work done in the house and the senate and with the president to create total tax reform, spending reduction, sound money, free trade and minimal regulation. get the heck of the wait and let the economy sell itself. >> a dirty word. >> i hope you're right. listen, the markets are going. they break a record on th
